To all readers, heed this warning. While this game looks like an innocent dating simulator, you are likely to be mentally scarred by the game. It's nearly impossible to explain how the game works or fully warn those who are interested without spoiling the plot and events that take place, but I will...

Though released in 1995, No Use for a Name's Fields of Agony, in my opinion, is as relevant today as it was over 20 years ago. Though it was likely written in response to the U.S.'s involvement with the conflicts in Somalia and Haiti, and used for Rock Against Bush Vol. 2 in response to the war...
